As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, wife and mother of 5 children (2 with special needs); all of my content isn’t just what I teach – but what I live day in and day out.
Here we are on the Brooklyn Bridge!
Elephant Space is a non-profit organization that provides a drop-in games-based after school program for youth ages 12 – 15, providing them the opportunity to be supported and have the sense of belonging.
This free drop-in program runs out of the Wellesley Community Centre in downtown Toronto.
In addition to board games, they provide snacks, help with homework and mentorship as well as giving youth the opportunity to chat, relax and feel better in a safe space while forming meaningful relationships.
Elephant Space was founded by Milan Seki in June of 2016 and was inspired from her experience of being bullied in middle school.
I found Milan’s focus and perseverance inspiring – she identified a gap (youth aged 12 – 15) where these children are often on their own, too old for daycare and too young to join the work force. Milan plans on opening up more centres across Toronto.
